Fireworks and ammunition collection is Thursday; volunteers also … – Lincoln Journal Star

The Bureau of Fire Prevention will collect unwanted fireworks and ammunition Thursday in the east parking lot at Oak Lake Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Chief Fire Inspector Bill Moody said the department provides the collection service because it typically receives numerous requests throughout the year to pick up unused and unwanted fireworks. The devices become more dangerous as they age, he said.

“Storing unused and unwanted fireworks and ammunition in your home can be a hazardous situation due to the fact that both fireworks and ammunition can degrade,” Moody said.

City ordinance allows the sale and use of permissible fireworks in the city only from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. July 3 and from 8 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. July 4 of each year.

Volunteers are also needed for the annual Oak Lake cleanup from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday. 

The city’s annual Uncle Sam Jam celebration is Tuesday at Oak Lake Park. More information: lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: Uncle Sam Jam).
